Books are are important in the sciences because they take a broader view of a topic that does a research article or a review article. When you are new to a topic or starting a big research project (like a senior thesis or a literature review), starting with books is a better strategy than diving straight into research articles. Find books in the library by using Library Search as well as browsing the shelves of the biology collection.
